BlackCat, I'm so excited that you feel enthusiastic about pursuing a career is social work/sociology. Let me share with you my own experiences on picking a career. I tried to be a bookkeeper once and I was sooooo miserable. That job was filled with a lot of mundane tasks. Furthermore, as a profession, accounting rewards consistency, accuracy, and attending to details. These are not my strong points. So I quit in search of a job that did play to my strengths.
This is how I came to marketing. For example, you don't saunter into work at 9:30 am in most accounting departments. There's a self-selection of people who go into accounting that don't appreciate my free spirit attitude on the job. But, I can do this in Marketing and no one cares (well some do, but most don't... as long as I get the job done.)
I tell you this because I was wondering if you had considered what kind of social work you'd like to go into. It is my understanding that there are three kinds of social workers. Macro, Mezzo, and Micro. Macro would include policy forming and advocacy on the national or even international level. Mezzo social work is about working with agencies and local non-profits. This practice would include policy making within a social work agency or developing programs for a particular neighborhood. Micro level social work involves advocating for and providing services to individuals and families.
If my experience can teach anyone anything, it'd be to find a job that fits your strengths. You have some amazing gifts that I don't have. My read on you is that your Introverted. [Waits to see if you agree with this. If you do, I proceed.] That means that you have a real depth of concentration that I do not. You also like working with facts (which I do not). My read on you is that you are a very warm and caring person, and also a very flexible and adaptable person. (This we both have in common.) [Waits to see if you agree with this. If you do, I proceed.]
You, of course, are the only one who can say for sure, but I bet you'd be really good at the Micro kind of social work, whereas I'd be far more attracted to the Macro policy-making kind. I bet you'd really enjoy providing direct practical care to people. Micro social work is definitely hands-on. I'd bet this would be a good fit for you.
If I could offer you any advice it would be to consider these kind of issues before you commit to a profession. If you want, I'd be happy to send you a couple of links that discuss how personality and career satisfaction interrelate. Let me know what you decide.
